Nephilium (1725) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Hints of nuts, vanilla, and sugar in the aroma. Pours a reddish-brown with a huge white head. Nice creamy mouthfeel, flavors of dark fruits are predominant. This could be a nice introduction to Belgian beers for a newcomer.

Pours hazy brown with a short-lasting tan head. The aroma contains malts, yeast, raisin, dark fruits, spices and some caramel. It tastes medium sweet and light sour. Medium body and creamy mouthfeel. In all aspects the little brother of the St. Bernardus beers.
